Jordan’s Final Project Critique and stuff

Name: Flegs

An interactive installation in the Gates’ Helix that shows what is really happening on the other side of the wall.


The project:
Ideally, this would be an installation in the Gates Helix near the helix entrance to the fourth floor. A camera will detect people on the outside of the helix, and project fake feet in their place.

How this will presented:
I want to be a part of the main exhibit, and having the installation in Gates isn’t being part of the exhibit. What I can do is use a table flipped on its side as a faux wall. I’ll need a table, and a stand/desk for my laptop, my camera, and my projector. Looks like I’ll just be showing a video and a poster. If a TV+DVD player can be provided, that’d be great. Otherwise, my laptop and one of my lab’s 22″ monitors could probably do the trick.I’ll also need a poster stand.
I have class on Wed from noon to 4:30 straight…but I’ll definitely make an effort to be there at least an hour and a half early. Patrick mentioned we can set up in the morning, so I’ll probably do that.

TV + DVD Player
Poster Stand

Update 4/26/2010:
I installed Flegs today for two hours! It was a lot of fun and I had some great support.
Here’s a pic from setting up:

    look up OF sync framerate

    thanks for finding that!

    cool idea. maybe you can make animations in affter effcts (not too hard to learn if you don’t know it already), export a video of the animation, and then load that video into oF instead of a still image

    Do the images need to stretch?
    Put some limits on the horizontal stretch factor, like: e.g. between 0.6 and 1.6, but not more.

    Karl sez: make a test video at the right time of day, then tweak your code to work with that. Undefine #USE_LIVE_VIDEO in the oF project for your testing phase.
    GL: make a video of people using your project in situ. Show reaction shots. For the final exhibition, show a DVD of your video from the Gates center, and a poster (with some oF screenshots) explaining your project.
